The seven millionth skills card has been issued by the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) Foundation.
The card recognises the holder is competent in seven core IT skills including word processing, spreadsheet handling and file management.
“Seven million candidates being registered with the ECDL certification programme is a significant achievement,” said ECDL Foundation chief executive officer Damien O’Sullivan. “It shows we set the global benchmark in end-user skills programmes.”
The ECDL is available in 146 countries through public and private providers, in both classroom-based and online formats. There are 1.5 million card holders in the UK including Kilmarnock footballer Allan Johnston who was the 10,000th person to get an ECDL skills card from Dumfries and Galloway College earlier this year.
